How to make a wine advent calendar

We recently posted a picture of a wine advent calendar on the Share the Bottle Facebook page. It seemed like such a cool idea that we decided to make one too.

Here are step-by-step instructions for making your own wine advent calendar. 


Step 1: Assemble the following materials

  • 1 spool of festive ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Red sharpie or marker
  • Construction paper
  • Hole punch
  • 25 bottles of wine
  • 1 mother-in-law


Step 2: Ask your Mother-in-Law if she'd like to work on a project

Mother-in-laws love to help decorate your home. Give her the materials you've assembled and show her the picture below. She'll know what to do.


Step 3: Let your mother-in-law know she's appreciated

Be sure to show your appreciation for her efforts. My mother-in-law likes beer. One tip -- it's a good idea to reward your mother-in-law after the advent calendar is finished.

Happy Holidays!!
